President and Founder

January 31, 2019
Tom was born the only child to Nick and Peggy Fidler, in Michigan, 1970. He and his parents moved to Alaska in the first year of his birth where he was raised and still resides. A child of divorce, his parents separated when he was 6 years old. They both remarried but were amicable in their divorce, remaining good friends until Thomas’s father’s death in 2007.

Thomas went to University of Alaska Anchorage where he obtained a degree in Fire Service Administration, before serving his community as a Volunteer Firefighter, EMT, and member on the Mat-su Borough Local Emergency Planning Committee.

He worked in the Environmental Remediation field for several years as a project manager before starting an Environmental Remediation business in 1998 that lasted until his graduation for a 2nd degree in Networking in 2010. After that he worked in the IT field until 2018 finishing out his career in that field as the Director of IT of a small neurology center in Anchorage, AK.

At the time of this writing, Thomas is attending school again pursuing a degree in law, where he hopes to bring his technology experience to a growing need in the field of law.

He has two children, Cannon and Sierra Fidler who have graduated high school and are also now attending college. Thomas was fortunate enough to enjoy 50-50 custody of his children the last 3 years of their high school years. This is a custody arrangement that he had to fight for and if it had been left to the courts would have left his children fatherless. For several years his children were forced to by the courts to endure the every other weekend Disneyland Dad scenario, instead of receiving the involvement of a loving and involved father they deserved and now have.

Thomas Fidler is serving his second term as President of The Fathers’ Rights Movement (TFRM). This Non-profit organization began as nothing more than a Facebook page that was created for Thomas to express his feelings at the injustices he and his children experienced. Meeting and connecting online with other men and women the page quickly grew and Thomas used the platform to encourage and inspire others to get involved at a local level in their own communities and to educate the benefits of Family Law Reform. It continued to grow over the years with chapters and grass root groups starting in all 50 states and multiple countries. TFRM’s Facebook page is now the largest most active forum on Fathers Rights and parental equality in the world with over half a million supporters and a reach of millions used to educate and spread awareness.

Dr. Travis Gee, PhD
Director of Research
E-mail: tgee@tfrm.us
Travis is a psychologist in Queensland, Australia. Born in Canada, he completed an Honours BA in Music and French, but needed one credit over a summer to graduate. This was Psych100. He became fascinated by the field, and completed a Masters in the psychology of musical performance, studying jazz musicians. He completed his PhD in Psychology in 1998 in psychological assessment (Personal Projects Analysis, with Prof. Brian R. Little supervising). His PhD comprehensive paper on False Memory Syndrome is archived at the National Centre for Reason in Justice.

Dr. Gee then moved to Australia to teach and pursue research at several universities there, writing numerous scientific articles and developing statistical analyses for combining studies. While teaching he maintained part-time private practice counseling from 2002 onwards, the practice went full-time after finishing a contract teaching in the clinical stream at the University of Southern Queensland in 2011.

He has written reports for both men and women involved in both criminal and family law processes, as well as reviewing evidence in cases related to his PhD comprehensive topic, False Memory Syndrome. He has made major submissions to various governmental bodies in relation to family law, child support and parental alienation issues, as well as the American Psychiatric Association in their revision of the DSM-5 to support inclusion of PAS. Dr. Gee has had editorial, guest editor, and reviewer roles for various scholarly journals, including an invited book review for Cambridge University Press on a PAS-related volume. He has written book chapters as well as articles, and despite being out of academia, continues to work on publishing articles. His most recent one is in the Australian Journal of Clinical Hypnotherapy, where 2 more in a series are planned, to emphasize the need to consider traumatic brain injury before assuming ‘forgotten’ childhood trauma is to blame for various symptoms, and trawling for a history that may not exist.

His role as a psychologist has included numerous cases involving Child Safety matters, DV allegations, Hague Convention matters and managing difficult high-conflict separations. He has been associated with local men’s groups and TFRM for several years, out of professional and personal interest in matters surrounding denial of children’s rights to a loving, fit parent through systemic support of a disturbed parent, based on false stereotypes and family law professionals who fail to base analyses on a balanced view of the existing research.

Dr. Gee is father to 5 children, and enjoys playing guitar, bass and banjo and still hopes to learn mandolin and violin, and one day resume the saxophone. He has recently taken up golfing, and has along the way found it to be a useful tool for helping people with anger management issues.

Benjamin Beveridge
Treasurer
E-mail: bbeveridge@tfrm.us

Ben Beveridge was born in Galveston, Texas and has resided in Texas his entire life. He lived with his mom, dad and siblings until my parents divorced when he was in the 4th grade. After that, he and his siblings lived with his mom and visited his dad. Luckily, his parents co-parented very well and as a child he saw very little, if any, strife between them. He has worked at different environmental companies for about five years as a plant operator and is currently preparing to step into an engineering position. One of the personal benefits to Ben’s career with environmental companies was working closely with his recently deceased older brother. Ben is a life-long learner and has been in college since graduating high school. He currently holds an Associate’s Degree in Process Technology and Bachelor’s Degrees in Control and Instrumentation Design as well as Chemical Engineering. Ben is currently enrolled at the South Texas College of Law where he is working to be able to provide much needed help to non-custodial parents.

At the age of 24 Ben was blessed with the birth of his daughter and again at the age of 26 when his twin boys were born. Like many of our members, Ben’s right to be an active and involved parent was deceptively taken from him in 2010. Through persistence, self-education, and a still on-going battle, Ben was able to increase his parenting time and thereby improving the lives of his children. However, this road lead Ben to the realization that he was not alone and his situation was unfortunately the norm. This lead him to join TFRM and continue to fight for parental equality for the sake of all children.
